How it works
The training takes place over two days, but we also offer a number of optional sessions during and after the course to support our attendees to implement sustainable, long term change.
Delegates can join our online network to collaborate with peers and sign up to a monthly senior mental health lead mailing for ongoing advice, tips and quality-assured resources.
